Doctrine of Devils

Because our Israel people do not understand the Two Seedlines they do not understand that the turbulent, strife-ridden history of recent years has prompted many to seek explanations of the chronic global travail, enlightenment as to its causes and cures, and perhaps an authentic, warranted glimpse of what lies beyond the obviously grave crisis in human affairs. This is available, in fully adequate detail and remarkable explicitness, within the pages of the Bible. In His benevolent providence, God provided all knowledge necessary for our Israel people to understand and endure the unprecedently troublous years at what appears to be the age-closing climax of mundane affairs.

Unfortunately, for everyone who seeks and avails him self of the light of inspired prophecy, a thousand are drawn to dubious, delusive sources of information; like the Judeo-Christian clergy. The multiplicity of these false systems and philosophies is almost inconceivable. Casual leafing through a singe magazine reveals advertisements touting the wondersof Mayanry, astrology, Rosicrucianism, Masonry, and assorted varieties of yoga, along with brotherhoods, foundations and “research centers” ad infinitum.

The stock-in-trade of all these persuasive propagandists is some system of occult knowledge, hoary with antiquity, which will purportedly revolutionize the life of the neophyte, provide pat mystic (you can listen to the Art Bell program at night and hear all sorts of antichrist, mystics, Buddhists, Indian Witch doctors, shamans, and etc., for that is all he will put on because of his turning coward) answers to all life’s problems and enable the earnest novitiate to acquire sundry superhuman powers. A typical prospectus reads: “‘Man was made to live in light,’ say the ancient prophets and master teachers who studied and mastered the Solar and Cosmic forces and were able to perform amazing feats.”

That ancient and venerable systems of learning exist need not be denied, nor that they contain an admixture of truth in varying proportions. They presumably flourished in the vanished civilizations which antedated the present historical epoch and whose awesome demise left the world “without form, and void,” as Jeremiah was once shown it in a vision. (Jeremiah 4:23) And it is an inevitable assumption that their deficiencies were responsible, in major measure, for the annihilation of those proud prehistoric civilizations in a fiery holocaust of watery cataclysm.

That these ancient systems of knowledge played a fateful role in bringing about the destruction of the antediluvian civilization within the present historical epoch is not conjecture but clearly indisputable fact. It was a time when unregenerate angels (sons of God in the Genesis account) were especially active in mundane affairs. The result was a period of unparalleled corruption, so all-pervasive that god swept the entire civilization away with the Deluge.

The venerableness of these occult philosophies, therefore, is hardly a valid reason for embracing them. Nor is, by itself, the fact that “adepts” are able to perform feats that are quite marvelous, if not actually miraculous. Repeatedly the Bible warns the faithful against deceivers and corrupters, against the “spirits of devils, working miracles” (Revelation 16:14) and against artful perverters whose inspiration is from the bottomless pit: “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-10)

The one preeminently inescapable fact about these occult disciplines is that they have been superseded. Like King Belshazzar, whose kingdom at one point in history held sway as the supreme suzerain of the “mystery of iniquity,” they were weighed in the balances and found wanting. Even before the history of the Adamic race began, God, in His infinite wisdom and foreknowledge, had determined to regenerate the earth by a more vital religion, a special intermediation, a consecrated multitude imbued with a sounder ethos.

That Yahweh had the entire plan of redemption formulated for His Israel people before the history of the Adamic race began will be hotly disputed by the higher critics and the more obtuse theologians. No other conclusion is possible, however, once the testimony of three independent witnesses is unbiasedly studied and correlated. The stars and constellations, stripped of the later added Greco-Roman names inspired by pagan idolatry and restored to their pure, uncorrupted Hebrew and Arabic appellations, speak with sublime, eternal eloquence of the wonders of God’s Redemptive plan. Names like Al Phirk (the Redeemer), Taleh (the Lamb), Braziggai (the sacrifice of righteousness) and Orion (coming forth as light) abound in the mute, majestic revelation in the heavens.

The second witness to Yahweh’s mighty plan of Salvation is the Great Pyramid of Gizeh, built approximately 2600 years B.C. Here, in architectural, geometrical and astronomical symbolism, is enshrined achronologyical outline of the entire 6000-year “work week” from 4000 B.C. to 2001 A.D., when the work of the “building race” appears to be completed and the millennial reign of righteousness begins. The central focus of this extended period is graphically shown to be the afternoon of April 7, 30 A.D. Exactly on this day, as the centuries unfolded, the crucified Savior from the stake declared, “It is finished” signifying that His appointed task of reconciling the oft-errant building race, the Israelites have been Redeemed, to Yahweh had been consummated so that the work of regeneration could sweep forward to completion.

Finally there is the Bible, tracing through history and prophecy the steady, step-by-step implementation of the Divine plan. Hand in hand, corroborating and complementing one another in perfect harmony, the three witnesses provide irrefutable evidence of the scope and foreknowledge of the transcendent design. An Israelite people wearied by stale, effete philosophies was to be rejuvenated by an energizing spirit from on high: “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?” (Isaiah 43:18-19)

From generation to generation the clash between the Two Seedlines and the old and the new has gone on, often with direct Divine intervention to confound the forces of disruption. At the time of the flood, only Noah and his family were saved, of the Adamic Race, to carry on the work of the building race. Conversance with all the vast body of occult and cosmic knowledge could not save a civilization where every imagination of the thoughts of men’s hearts was “only evil continually.”

But perhaps the most dramatic and significant test of strength between the old and the new came at the time of the Exodus from Egypt. At the very start a curious fact is evident. For the supremely important task of leading forth His people and organizing His Kingdom, God chose no “adept” or “master” of occult sciences but rather a comparatively untutored man whose first reacion upon learning of his commission was, “Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the Children of Israel out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:11) Nonetheless, Yahweh ordered Moses to go, and he would be given power.

The first three rounds between Moses and Aaron on the one hand and the sorcerers and wise men and magicians of Egypt on the other resulted in a draw. When Aaron cast down his rod and it became a serpent, Pharaoh’s brain trust matched the feat; except that Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. On subsequent occasions Moses and Aaron turned the waters of Egypt to blood and brought forth a plague of frogs. Each time the magicians of Pharaoh were able to do likewise.

The fourth encounter, however, had a radically different outcome. When the magicians of Egypt attempted to duplicate the feat of Moses and Aaron in the turning the dust of the land to lice, they failed. This is the finger of Yahweh, they told Pharaoh. Steeped in every occult science and esoteric philosophy, the wise men of Egypt were “stopped cold” when Yahweh Himself intervened.

Subsequently Yahweh wrought other miracles, until in the end Pharaoh permitted the Israelites to depart. The emphasis must be on coming forth or coming out of. Yahweh’s major objective was to divorce His people from the sterile, corrupted old ways and set them apart for special tutelage. For this purpose they sojourned forty years in the Sinai wilderness.

This is reminiscent of our ancestors when they came to the new world, and started their westward trek, because for all practical purposes this continent was one vast wilderness. Oh sure there were Indians here, but there were only about 200,000 which is a relative view for the vastness of what we now know as the United States, the New Jerusalem.

Again, when Joseph brought the infant Jesus back from Egypt, after fleeing there to escape the wrath of Herod, a centuries-old prophecy of Hosea was fulfilled. “When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.” (Hosea 11:1) Stressed anew is coming out; the dissociation of Yahweh’s people from Egypt which, in Biblical terminology, becomes a symbol for the false, idolatrous world-system.

In the eighteenth chapter of Revelation, just before Yahweh intervenes to sweep utterly away the false world-system, the devil and his children as the new age of righteousness is about to dawn, the cry once more goes forth: “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4)

This set-apartness of Israel is basic and fundamental. Where occultists tech universal brotherhood, the oneness of all beings beneath the superficial differentiation of races, nations and creeds, the Scriptures stress intrinsic and clear-cut divisions. Old Testament or New, the theme is recurrent and insistent. As Moses told the Israelites: “You are a People consecrated to your Everliving God; and the Ever-Living chose yo to be a People separated from all the Peoples who are upon the face of the earth.” (Deuteronomy 14:2, Ferror Fenton Translation)

Much of the Old Testament narrative details Yahweh’s never-relenting efforts to keep His people uncontaminated by the idolatrous nations about them. At times the battle seemed all but lost. At one point Yahweh told Elijah, “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.” (1 Kings 19:18) always, however, the winnowing process went on, whether the harvest of a generation was man or few.

“Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ru‑hamah. Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts; Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst. And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms. For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink. Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths. And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now. For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.” (Hosea 2:1-8) KJV

Is this not a perfect description of our Israel people, here in the United States today? It sure fits them perfectly, yet we are not destroyed because Yahweh has separated some of His Israel people from all of this, and they have remained faithful to Him.

If anything, the doctrine of set-apartness is more sharply expounded in the New Testament than in the Old. The “great gulf” between the rich man and Lazarus; Christ categorically branding the unbelieving Jews as of their father, the devil. And always the insistence that many follow the broad way to destruction, while only a few enter in at the narrow gateway of life.

"Jew and Gentile are two worlds, between you Gentiles and us Jews there lies an unbridgeable gulf... There are two life forces in the world Jewish and Gentile ...I do not believe that this primal difference between Gentile and Jew is reconcilable...The difference between us is abysmal...You might say: 'Well, let us exist side by side and tolerate each other. We will not attack your morality, nor you ours.' But the misfortune is that the two are not merely different; they are opposed in mortal enmity. No man can accept both, or, accepting either, do otherwise than despise the other." (Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, pages 2, 19, 23, 30 and 95)

But this concept of sharp basic divisions the occultists will have none of. Always their object is to adulterer, twist and debase Yahweh’s revelation of truth. Always they endeavor to spoil His work by breaking down the barriers so that the blight of falsehood may corrupt the plant He is painstakingly nurturing. As one handbook of occultism states: “Our fundamental spiritual basis is in the Central Sun, the Christos; who is the Radiant Point contacting the Nucleolus (the spiritual self) and giving life, energy and creative purpose to all the differentiated parts...In the Radiant Point all beings have their life in common. In that point or plane we are all of one blood, (life) as Paul says and there we find the occult basis of the law of Universal Brotherhood; all in one and one in all.”

This came directly from the Kabbalah:

Out of this incomprehensible and indescribable Nothing came Something. Probably more words have been devoted to this moment than any other in Kabbalah, and it is all too easy to make fun the effort which has gone into elaborating the indescribable, so I won't, but in return do not expect me to provide a justification for why Something came out of Nothing. It just did. A POINT crystalized in the En Soph. In some versions of the story the En Soph "contracted" to "make room" for the creation (Isaac Luria's theory of Tsimtsum), and this is probably an important clarification for those who have rubbed noses with the hidden face of God, but for the purposes of these notes it is enough that a POINT crystallized. This POINT was the crown of creation, the Sephira Kether, and within Kether was contained all the unrealized potential of the creation.

An aspect of Kether is the raw creative force of God which blasts into the creation like the blast of hot gas which keeps a hot air balloon in the air. Kabbalists are quite clear about this; the creation didn't just happen a long time ago ‑ it is happening all the time, and without the force to sustain it the creation would crumple like a balloon. The force‑like aspect within Kether is the Sephira Chockhmah and it can be thought of as the will of God, because without it the creation would cease to “be.” The whole of creation is maintained by this ravening, primeval desire to “be,” to become, to exist, to change, to evolve. The experiential distinction between Kether, the POINT of emanation, and Chockhmah, the creative outpouring, is elusive, but some of the difference is captured in the phrases "I am" and "I become.”

Force by itself achieves nothing; it needs to be contained, and the balloon analogy is appropriate again. Chockhmah contains within it the necessity of Binah, the Mother of Form. The person who taught me Kabbalah (a woman) told me Chockhmah (Abba, the Father) was God's prick, and Binah (Aima, the mother) was God's womb, and left me with the picture of one half of God continuously ejaculating into the other half. The author of the Zohar also makes frequent use of sexual polarity as a metaphor to describe the relationship between force and form, or mercy and severity (although the most vivid sexual metaphors are used for the marriage of the Microprosopus and his bride, the Queen and Inferior Mother, the Sephira Malkuth).

The Sephira Binah is the Mother of Form; form exists within Binah as a potentiality, not as an actuality, just as a womb contains the potential of a baby. Without the possibility of form, no thing would be distinct from any other thing; it would be impossible to distinguish between things, impossible to have individuality or identity or change. The Mother of Form contains the potential of form within her womb and gives birth to form when a creative impulse crosses the Abyss to the Pillar of Force and emanates through the Sephira Chesed. Again we have the idea of "becoming,” of outflowing creative energy, but at a lower level.

The Sephira Chesed is the POINT at which form becomes perceptible to the mind as an inspiration, an idea, a vision, that "Eureka!" moment immediately prior to rushing around shouting "I've got it! I've got it!" Chesed is that quality of genuine inspiration, a sense of being "plugged in" which characterizes the visionary leaders who drive the human race onwards into every new kind of endeavor. It can be for good or evil; a leader who can tap the petty malice and vindictiveness in any person and channel it into a vision of a new order and genocide is just as much a visionary as any other, but the positive side of Chesed is the humanitarian leader who brings about genuine improvements to our common life.

No change comes easy; as Cordova points out "everything wishes to remain what it is.” The creation of form is balanced in the Sephira Gevurah by the preservation and destruction of form. Any impulse of change is channeled through Gevurah, and if it is not resisted then something will be destroyed. If you want to make paper you cut down a tree. If you want to abolish slavery you have to destroy the culture which perpetuates it. If you want to change someone's mind you have to destroy that person's beliefs about the matter in question. The Sephira Gevurah is the quality of strict judgement which opposes change, destroys the unfamiliar, and corresponds in many ways to an immune system within the body of God.

On the surface this appears to be a restatement of the Biblical affirmation that “in him we live, and move, and have our being.” (Acts 17:28) But note how subtly the metaphysical gobbledegook undermines central tenets of the Christian faith. Instead of standing forth majestically as the world’s Redeemer before whom every knee will bow, the “Christos”becomes a depersonalized force, a spiritual essence. Can anyone imagine Thomas, upon touching this abstruse “Radiant Point,” exclaiming, “My Lord and my God?”

And it is the theory of universal brotherhood, rooted in the bottomless pit, which is behind the last ditch efforts of one-worlders to block the imminent establishment of God’s everlasting Stone Kingdom, of which His Israel people will form the nucleus.

By depersonalizing God and Christ, in fact: and by warping the religious experience into a coldly impersonal evolutionary process, the occultists effectively “deal themselves out” of the glorious new heavenly Kingdom on earth. For membership is by selection, and the basis of selection is The Faith, The Way, The Life. Or, in other words, through Christianity; the road to salvation ordained by Yahweh through His Redeemer Son.

“I have chosen you,” is Christ’s word that opens the Kingdom gate to the follower. “And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my special treasure.” (Malachi 3:17, marg.) Where the occultist must pick his painful way forward some remote, inscrutable “Radiant Point,” the Christian may bask continually in the warm abiding love of God the Father and God the Redeeming Son: “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4:10)

To a Christian, the impersonal Karmic world of the Kabbalistic occultist can only seem coldly repellent. Having chosen to work outside the redemptive-regenerative process ordained by God, they face only ages of grim, toilsome effort aimed at some nebulous goal of attaining “higher ranges of consciousness” so that they may assist the “Elder Brothers” in the succor and benefit of humanity and act as “helpers of evolution.” Annie Besant, a modern high priestess of theosophy, describes the arduousness and interminableness of the neophyte’s road in these words: “Everything that is good...becomes part of the stream of evolution, of that ‘not ourselves which makes for righteousness,’ and therefore it can never perish, can never be destroyed. Here lies not only the hope of man but the certainty of his final triumph; however slow the growth, it is there; however long the way, it has its ending.”

An occultist must find it discouraging, if not downright infuriating, to see Christians, through a simple spiritual transaction, pass through the gate of acceptance which he himself may reach only after eons of laborious striving, if at all: “Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh.” (Hebrews 10:19-20)

Or as Paul puts it in his Epistle to the Romans: “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath foreordained (marg.) To be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.” (Romans 3:24-25)

And in the seventh chapter of Revelation is a description of the multitude who availed themselves of the gateway and qualified for life in the regenerated earth. Oddly enough, it says nothing about their being “adepts” who had impregnated themselves in occult sciences and readied their souls through intensive effort in incarnation after incarnation. It says nothing about any prerequisite of mastery of the astral world. The simple statement is: “These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:14)

But no such freely-bestowed gift of justification and life eternal interests the occultists. Just as the finest full-course dinner will not save a starving man unless he reaches out to take it, so God’s gift of sin-remission and sanctification must be accepted through compliance with the conditions. Its very simplicity causes many to turn away from it: The processes of purification and development.” wrote Annie Besant, “are also continuous, and must be carried on through many successive earth-lives.” And in rejecting the Light, they find that their own light is but darkness.

When she speaks of many earth-lives, she lies through her teeth for the scriptures state that it is appointed once to die and THEN the resurrection. Nothing is said of living many times. This is simply Jewish propaganda, and the lies of their father the devil.

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27) KJV

Verses which show that the dead do not know anything until the resurrection (Job 14:12; 17:13-16; 19:25-27; Psalm 6:5; 17:15; 49:8-20; 88:10; 115:17; 141:7; 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5-10; Isaiah 9:19-20; Daniel 12:17; Hosea 13:14; John 3:13; Acts 2:34; 1 Corinthians 15:55; Hebrews 11:13)

In no better state are the occultists who “major” in astrology. Painstakingly they plot horoscopes to see what planetary influences are teaming to prosper their day or conspiring to frustrate their best efforts. The dead hand of paganism lies heavy upon them. In subjecting themselves to the old, they shut themselves off from the new. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Corinthians 3:17) There is no room for love, no room for mercy, in the implacable planetary influences which astrologers say rule the affairs of men. How different for the believers who accept the “new and living way.”

“The Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.” (Isaiah 25:8)

The advent of the space age has given the demonic perverters a new line of attack. Capitalizing upon the interest of many in unidentified flying objects, or “flying saucers,” they are finding new avenues for promulgating the perversions of occultism, otherwise known as Kabbalism. In a book by George Adamski entitled “Inside the Space Ships,” a personality who purported to be from another planet made this statement: “After the crucifixion of Jesus, who was sent to be incarnated on your world to help your people, as had others before him, we decided to carry on our mission in a way less perilous to those concerned than actual birth on your planet.”

It is immaterial whether a disembodied spirit actually manifested as an extraterrestrial personality, or whether Adamski “dreamed up” the whole incident. The damage is done by the single debasement, which downgrades the Great Redeemer manifested through His earthly Incarnation into just another space traveler who met with misfortune, and which makes His atoning death merely a lamentable accident. In whatever guise they present themselves, the demonic spirits are always motivated by the same objective: to debase and pervert the truth, and turn as many as possible aside form Yahweh’s Way of Salvation.

To see that this is Jewish teaching, we ask you to turn to 2 Timothy 4:3‑4: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” KJV

And: Titus 1:14: “Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.” KJV

For in setting up the process of world regeneration, Yahweh omitted nothing essential. This does not mean that He cast aside everything that had gone before. Much was retained; which explains certain correspondences between Christian doctrine and esoteric dogma, of which occultists make much. But the ordained Way of Salvation includes one supernaturally vital new element. And in rejecting this, the occultists lose everything: “For the peaching of the cross (should be rendered stake) is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18)

The all-embracing adequateness and efficacy of Christianity was eloquently summarized by William Milne in “A Retrospect of the First Ten Years of the Protestant Mission to China.”“Its moral and positive duties,” he wrote, “are equally binding on all to whom the Gospel is made known...and its tremendous sanctions will be executed on all who reject or abuse it, without partiality, and without the possibility of appeal or escape. It commands nothing inconsistent with the outward condition of nations or of individuals; while it contains the germ of every principle necessary to render the throne stable; the nation prosperous, the family happy, the individual virtuous, and the soul eternally blessed.”

Unfortunately, even within the Church this resplendent vision of Christianity’s preeminent scope is often but dimly perceived. Satanic detractors have wormed their way into pulpit and seminary, warping and diluting its message. They have chipped away and bored from within, ever trying to debase Christianity to the level of other religions so that there might be “brotherhood” between Christian and Jew, a brotherhood that can never exist because Christians are of Yahweh, and the Jews are of the devil, Christian and Hindu, Christian and Universalist. Peddling an emasculated effigy of The Faith, they have dimmed into a flickering glimmer the Light that should guide the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic nations unfalteringly through these troublous times. In the preface to his recently published “Life of Christ,” Bishop Fulton J. Sheen states the case succinctly: “The Western post-Christian civilization has picked up the Christ without His Cross. But a Christ without a sacrifice that reconciles the world to god is a cheap, feminized, colorless itinerant preacher who deserves to be popular for His great Sermon on the Mount.”

It is very obvious that this Bishop Fulton J. Sheen does not know who Israel is, and that Christianity is NOT  a universal religion.

Whether it be the pat parchments of the occultists or the impotent adulterations of the modernists, the counterfeit faiths will be revealed in all their shoddy futility as the age sweeps to its close. Neither apostate nor devil, dupe nor demon, can stay the majestic consummation of the Divine plan of world regeneration. Until the very last the satanic saboteurs will strive craftily to do what damage they can, seeking to lure those of little faith aside from the appointed gateway to salvation and beguile them with a false vision, just as Satan, the devil did to our mother Eve. But over the centuries multitudes have already been called and have chosen The Way, and assured themselves of this dispensation, others will enter in at the gate, thereby attaining the reward that awaits those who, rightly dividing the word of truth, spurn all blandishments of the Adversary’s indefatigable legions.
